Second looks at my #Spectacles From #SnapChat Part-2

Here’s my second observation with SnapChat’s #Spectacles

Duh right?!?!

Additionally, I am sure you are downloading your content in HD so that drains the battery even more because you are transferring it over bluetooth.

Sucking it dry…with social media.

More tomorrow peeps.

Important parts of my emergency preparedness kit #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

Starting out the third week in the 2014 National Preparedness Month.

“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”

Monday morning with the most important stuff!

This week’s theme is consistent with FEMA’s National Preparedness Campaign: Build an Emergency Kit

#15: Your essential emergency preparedness kit should include flashlights & a cell phone charger #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

Today’s tip is an easy one – flashlights and phone charger. It takes 10 seconds to include them in your emergency preparedness kit. Do it now.

Also-it seems like we lose power so frequently…so don’t be left in the dark (see what I did there?).

Candles are dumb because you stand the possibility of burning your house down and killing your family. During an emergency, gas leaks are common. Obviously. Candles and a gas leak is a recipe for explosion. #Kaboom Soooooooooo DO NOT USE CANDLES.

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs have grown and now the base layer includes WiFi and phone power. Consider having a charging cable that has the ability to plug into a wall receptacle/plug or a USB charging point.

Multi-purpose binder clips help a lot #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

Rounding the corner through the first week of 2014 National Preparedness Month!

“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”

Of course you need to be prepared right?!?!? My goal is to provide actionable information so that you can better prepare you and your family.

This week’s theme is consistent with FEMA’s National Preparedness Campaign: Reconnect with Family After a Disaster.

#4: Multi-purpose binder clips help keep wires organized for easy visual access to connection points #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

These office binder clips allow me to keep things organized, clean, stowed neatly, and tied down as I travel around. Additionally, I am able to pair the ends of the cables together so I can immediately see the end attachment points.

(And who doesn’t love binder clips right?)

I have assessed my entire family’s cell phones and mobile devices and found that this lightning cable is needed by everyone. We are an iPhone 5 & 5s family.

Not pictured above, are my micro USB cables which charge other mobile devices. Everyone should plan on supporting power needs for the family’s mobile devices (tablets) and accessories (keyboards).

Assessing the entire family’s cell phone power needs before a disaster can ensure that your family will remain connected through and after a disaster.

Family first peeps!

Cell phone WITH cables and external power supply #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

Half way through the first week of 2014 National Preparedness Month!

“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”

Lots to do…just be prepared!

This week’s theme is consistent with FEMA’s National Preparedness Campaign: Reconnect with Family After a Disaster.

#3: Have extra cables w/ multi-option external power supply for charging your cell phone. #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

Week-01-Reconnect-CommunicationsGear

Because we use/push more information and data, our power consumption has skyrocketed. I find that having extra cables in various lengths will make life easier when charging your phone. Keeping your family informed before/during/after a disaster is so important – so keep your mobile devices charged!

Additionally, my extra battery pack has gets used almost daily. Busy lifestyles call for travel or remote working options so choose one that has a USB connection(s) so you can charge your various mobile devices.

Because you never want to be *that guy* or *that girl* who hides in the corner next to a smelly garbage can to use the lonely random plug because of this…

Free safety tips for today’s severe weather inbound #OHWX

Got some bad weather heading to North East Ohio today.

Here’s a few free tips you can use to prepare for today severe weather:

  • Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage during a severe thunderstorm.
  • Consider postponing outdoor activities.
  • Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
  • Break out your emergency preparedness kit and see if all flashlights are working. If not, get them in working order.
  • Charge all of your mobile devices including your cell phone now before the power goes out.

To get up to the minute updates during the Thunderstorm:

  • Use your battery operated NOAA Weather Radio for updates from the National Weather Service.
  • Cordless and wireless phones not connected to wall outlets are safe to use.

And after the storm passes, take these precautions as you survey the damage around your house:

  • Do NOT touch downed power lines. Assume all lines are charged and dangerous. Call your emergency services to handle safe removal of lines.
  • Wear log sleeved shirts and long pants with gloves and boots. Debris from storms are usually sharp and dangerous.
  • Power out? Check the power company’s website to see who else doesn’t have power here.
  • Never drive through a flooded roadway. Remember: Turn Around, Don’t Drown! #TADD

Feel free to share these tips with your neighbors too.
